The Hamon is the temper line that separates the sharpest part of the Katana from the softer part. The blade is coated with a unique clay mixture that will allow the blade to heat up differently and achieve a higher HRC hardness for the blade's edge. This is a crucial step in forging the Katana and the Hamon is an indicator of the authenticity of your Katana, as all Katanas have a Hamon line. The Hamon line is then revealed more fully during the stone polishing process, which allows for a sharp blade and the full detail of the Hamon to be seen. A real Katnana always have a differentially tempered blade that let appears the famous Hamon.
Katana (かたな in Hiragana) is a Japanese sword, the blade is curved with a cutting edge and it measures more than 24 inches (60cm). The Katana was used by the samurai during the Edo period in Japan. The Katanas are real works of art with a lot of details on the whole nomenclature. There are different sizes of Japanese swords which will have specific names like Wakizashi, Tachi, Tanto...
The classic size of the Katana is about 40". However, there are different variations depending on the type of sword and the size of the user, as the Katana must fit your height. The most common sword sizes are 40" for Daito and 35" for Shoto.Les tailles font référence à la longueur totale du sabre. The length of the blade itself on a Katana generally varies between 24" and 30".
Katanas are classified as knives by law and are governed by state laws. To own one, you must be over 18 years old or have implied parental permission.
There are 4 main steps to sharpening a Katana:
Shaping work using an uchigumori stone to remove rust and scratches.
The blade is then passed over progressively smaller and finer stones in an effort to remove the marks from the uchigumori stone.
Hazuya stones glued to traditional Japanese paper are then used in order to remove the microscopic scratches that are left from the previous polishing.
Finally a Jizuya stone is used and rubbed on the surface of the blade, this is a long process done until the stone wears out.
According to historians, the Katana was invented in order to obtain better swords to fight the Mongol forces. The Mongol armies invaded Japan from 1274 to 1281 in an attempt to invade the country.
It is also said that the straight sword was not suitable for fighting on horseback in battles, the Katana with its curved blade was then perfectly suited to what the warriors needed in battle.
